We Teach Well

Working to reduce educational inequality and to improve student outcomes globally.


We have a long way to go, but we know that it starts with teachers.

Teachers are at the centre of great teaching and learning, and if they get equal access to high quality professional development and support, their student’s outcomes will improve. 

English professional development.

The past couple of  years have been eye-opening. While the use of education technology was steadily growing before 2020, there is no doubt that the pandemic has accelerated it.

This has created so many possibilities for teacher professional learning networks that are not limited by geography. We can now reach teachers and students in places we couldn’t before.

Professional Development Courses

Teachers who are confident in their subject knowledge are better able to engage students in their learning. And engaged students will remain in school longer.

By embracing the options that digital technology provides, we can produce high quality, subject specific, curriculum agnostic, borderless professional development options that build confidence in English and literature teachers.

WTW World Lit Podcast. Decolonising Literature

Our World Lit podcast is central to our mission.

While we love literature in English, we are aware of how the English language has been, and still is, used to undermine cultures. It frustrates us that you can still see courses in ‘English Literature’ being taught around the world, but the texts that are studied are not English. They are Indian, and Russian and South American among many others.

The internet has provided educators with opportunities that were not even imagined when we started teaching.  When researching literature most of us needed to go to the library and find works by other (usually white) academics who had worked with that author or culture.

But we don’t have to do that now.

I can only imagine how wonderful it would have been to speak to a teacher in St Petersburg about how to teach Chekhov.

In the WTW World Lit Podcast – Decolonising Literature we speak to teachers and writers in other countries about their literature. About the culture and history that lies behind the texts we are teaching.

Online Coaching for English Teachers

Again, utilising technology we can offer valuable coaching for English teachers who want to increase their subject knowledge and pedagogy.

There is no single body of knowledge to be taught in English and literature. Poetry, novels, plays and films, amongst other texts, are used to teach students the skills they will need when they leave school. We wrote about this on our blog.

‘Soft Skills’ need a better PR Agent. | We Teach Well

As new issues arise and new texts are released, it is necessary for English teachers to keep current. That can be hard to do in the business and immediacy of a school setting. Our coaching programs give them the space and help to do this.

Some Fun with Shakespeare

Some Fun with Shakespeare

As we approach, once again, the day of Shakespeare’s birth and death, the faithful among us, (some would say nerds) start revisiting the Bard’s canon and the enormity of his influence.  This is a serious, and at the same time not serious, undertaking. There is much...

Teachers no longer have to travel long distances or for many hours to access high quality professional development.
